The Shuswap is named after the Shuswap First Nations – The Secwepemc – an important Salish Nation comprising 17 Bands, whose ancestors lived in South-Central British Columbia. Today, four First Nations bands live in the Shuswap region: the Adams Lake Indian Band, Neskonlith Indian Band, Splatsin First Nation and Little Shuswap Indian Band.
Salmon Arm is a small city, but it has all the amenities you are looking for. With expansive arts and culture events, world-class wineries, twin-sheet arena, recreation centre and pool, hundreds of kilometres of hiking and biking trails, golf courses, and of course houseboating and lake sports, there is something for everyone! The City also boasts a unique, picturesque downtown which draws tourists from around the world.
Proximity to markets is among the City’s many competitive advantages as it provides ready-access to provincial, nationa and international marketplaces. People, products and services are easily moved into and out of Salmon Arm via the TransCanada Highway, CP Rail, Shuswap Regional Airport, nearby Kelowna International Airport, proximity to the Port of Vancouver, and several United States border crossings.
